According to estimates, more than 25,000 Russian soldiers have died as of today, and in total, if we take into account the killed, captured and registered tens of thousands of deserters, this is more than 80,000 killed, wounded and other categories,” said Ben Wallace.
He predicts that such losses will have a long-term impact on the Russian military and its future combat capability.
